A little Irish charm

I'm not a good housekeeper. It's 65% of the reason I refer to myself as a hot mess. Oddly enough, what makes me feel better about my domestic ineptitude is holiday themed decor. I have a tiny house so not much room for decoration but I do like to make a little something happen. I've already mentioned my wreath making adventures but I also have a tiny corner of the tiny bathroom sink I like to spruce up a bit. It makes me feel just a teensy bit less like I suck.

I also live in Savannah, Ga, home of the second largest St Patrick's day parade in the nation. Now I have no idea why we love St Pat's so much. Apparently, a ton of Irish settled here back in the day but a ton of Irish settled in other places too. In any case, hotels sell out way in advance, college student break into the green beer right after the last class the weeknight before, and local school kids actually have the day off. So it's kind of a big deal.

I usually sew something for some of the kids and I'll probably continue that tradition this year. I'm actually eyeing some green striped knits over at Girl Charlee as I type. 

But for now, I will content myself with pride over my new wreath. So prideful I'm going to show you this picture even though it was taken in the dark and thus, looks like crap. But for the last few weeks, I've put off blog posts for one reason or another. I figured I'd better post while I'm ahead. 

Hopefully, I'll be back in short order to share some St Pat's picnic planning or maybe even show off something I've sewn. Or maybe Halloween decorations. 


Thanks to everyone who still follows. I really do appreciate you all and as always, feel free to comment, even if you just want to talk smack about the photo editing/abusing job I did on that wreath.
